Submission fee


The French-American Jazz Exchange (FAJE) celebrates the United States and France’s shared passion for jazz. A program of FACE Foundation and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, in collaboration with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, FAJE is designed to foster the creative and professional development of jazz artists from France and the United States.

FAJE Creative Project Grants support projects jointly conceived by French and American professional musicians that encourage artistic exploration, foster intercultural dialogue, and contribute to the dynamism of jazz. FAJE Creative Project grantees are encouraged to showcase completed work through public performance. To facilitate this, the FAJE program has expanded to include FAJE On Tour. FAJE On Tour will provide performance support to American non-profit presenters nationwide who present FAJE grantees’ recently completed creative projects.

For this funding cycle, projects must take place between July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2019.
